"Buffalo Medicine" Earrings with American Turquoise

"Buffalo Medicine" Earrings with American Turquoise

195.00

These Silver and Turquoise Earrings feature sky blue and brown American turquoise gemstones cut well by a master lapidary artist. I've paired these great stones with a hand cut buffalo head and added each tiny detail by hand.

These turquoise earrings dangle nicely and I created them as right and left specific. I love this theme and feel that the buffalo and the turquoise are natural matches for each other, perfectly depicting the iconic American West and the Buffalo.

These earrings are completely hand made. Only one head and two hands went into the making of them. I start with raw sterling and fine silver materials and create each detail by hand using saws, hammers, punches, files and fire.

ABOUT THE BUFFALO
<•>~~~~~•••~~~~<•>~~~~~•••~~~~<•>

To many people, myself included the American Buffalo or Bison is a symbol of strength, endurance, and power. Once entire populations survived on its relationship with the Bison and its ability to feed, clothe and shelter nations of people. For this reason it is a powerful symbol of female strength as it represents in its very existence the key to survival, and nurturing.
